Is it possible to cycle around Reschensee?


Clockwise or counterclockwise, the loop around Lake Resia can be cycled. There are a many possibilities for the starting place:

Start at the parking lot near the church tower in the lake

We follow the gravel road to the south, continue around the kite spot - on our left the road and on our right the lake - continue to the dam. When the weather is nice, we have a fantastic view of the Ortler, the highest mountain in South Tyrol at 3,905 meters. We cross the dam wall and follow the asphalt bike path back north along the west bank of the Reschsee. The cycling path leads through woods and meadows with slight inclines to Reschen and there we again follow a gravel path back to the starting point.

In total there are 70 meters of altitude. Length of the tour: 15 km.

Who is the bike path around the Reschensee suitable for?

Ideal as a leisurely excursion for families or as a cycling introduction for gravel or MTB bikers. The bike path is not suitable for racing bikes because the lake circuit is only partially asphalted.
